Finance Controller opportunity @ Leeds Counselling


We are seeking a part-time Finance Controller (17.5-21 hrs pw) to account for a number of different and changing income streams, and to provide accounting information to the Senior Management Team. The postholder will report to the charity’s part-time Finance Director, and be responsible to the Charity Director. There is scope for the role to develop over the next two years, as our current Finance Director works towards retirement. The postholder will need to be comfortable both with some day to day financial processing (though this will be supported by the charity’s administrative staff), with establishing systems and processes, and with taking a broad view of the role’s contribution to the charity’s overall development.

The post is based at Leeds Bridge House in Leeds city centre and further details can be found on our website
